21st April


There is no doubt that the greatest grace the Lord can give us is the opportunity to suffer something for love of Him. If we were without such sufferings, we should always be wretched, because of our attachment to ourselves and to the things of this earth, which are only vanity and misery. The eyes of our spirit would be blind, unable to see where our true happiness lay; we should lack a genuine spiritual life. This is why, sure of the mercy of God, I certainly ought to, and do in fact, count among my greatest blessings the bodily infirmities He sends me, with which I live, and which keep me alert, since they in part reveal me to myself. However, the complete revelation will come only with death.
